On Saturday I had to go into Melbourne’s CBD, so I thought I’d take my bike with me and ride around the city.
Mistake number one: It was the Myer Christmas Parade and half the city streets were shut off.
Mistake number two: They were working on the Springvale Road underpass, so there were no trains between Ringwood and Blackburn. As I had my bike, I wasn’t allowed on the rail replacement bus. This meant that I had to cycle from the one station to the other.
I didn’t mind the extra exercise – I cycled 30km instead of the planned 10km – but it was 35C outside on Saturday!
